Description

With its effective pedagogy, everyday examples, and outstanding collection of practical problems, it's no wonder Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics is the best-selling fluid mechanics text. The book helps readers develop the skills needed to master the art of solving fluid mechanics problems. Each important concept is considered in terms of simple and easy-to-understand circumstances before more complicated features are introduced. The new edition also includes a free CD-ROM containing the e-text, the entire print component of the book, in searchable PDF format.
  • 30% new problems, including practical, real-world, and simple examples.
  • New and updated in-chapter examples with graphs indicating the effects of changing parameter values.
  • Chapter 12, Turbomachines, is included in the printed text.
  • "Fluids in the News" case study boxes in each chapter (many with associated homework problems) help instructors motivate students, and increase student awareness of the ethical and political implications of their work.
  • A very brief description of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) remains in Ch. 6, but more in-depth discussion is included in an appendix, making it easy for instructors to incorporate CFD and FlowLab, or not, as they prefer.
  • A brief "Chapter Summary and Study Guide" at the end of each chapter.
  • Access to run FlowLab, an educational CFD program from Fluent, Inc. Instructors who adopt this text have the option to have FlowLab installed in their department free-of-charge. (This offer is available in the Americas only. Fees vary by geographic region outside the Americas.) Visit the Instructor Companion Site to request FlowLab to be installed in your department.

    • Option to package with JustAsk! -Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics 5th Edition can now be packaged with with JustAsk!(ISBN: 0470-067225)

JustAsk! provides students with:

  • -Detailed Problem Solutions that are interactive in  Problems and Solutions

    -Animations of Key Examples in Interactive Applications

    -A concepts database, also interactive in Chapter Concepts Summary works like a glossary, but also linked to problems. So, choose a concept and search all the problems linked to that concept!

· Greater number of solved examples than most competing texts.
· Good emphasis on practical problems.
· Early introduction of Bernoulli Equation.
· Summary sentences - A brief summary sentence on each page of the text.  An effective reference and resource for students, these sentences help students locate discussions of important concepts.  Used as a study tool, the summary sentences guide students to the key concepts they need to understand.
· Each example problem is completely solved using a problem statement and detailed solution, often giving a brief discussion of related principles from real-life situations.
· Key Words and Topics - Each chapter contains a list of key words and topics for review.
· Fluid Mechanics Phenomena - A series of 80 short video segments on the book website illustrate various aspects of real-world fluid mechanics.
   · Many of the segments show how fluid motion relates to familiar devices and everyday experiences. 
   · Each segment also clearly indicates the key fluid mechanics topic being demonstrated and provides a description of the content.
· Review Problems with Complete Solutions-For each chapter, the book website provides students with 10-20 review problems, so they can get additional practice, and check their work with the answer provided. In addition, the review problems are identified by the basic principle they demonstrate, allowing students easy reference to areas they need to review.
· Lab Problems - The book website contains 30 extended laboratory problems that involve actual experimental data for simple experiments often found in introductory fluid mechanics labs. The data for these problems is provided in Excel format.
· CFD appendix with FlowLab-Computational fluid dynamics material is provided in an appendix to give those who wish an introduction to the use of CFD to solve engineering fluid mechanics problems.  FlowLab (software for solution of CDF problems) is available free-of-charge for schools adopting this text. (This offer is available in the Americas only. Fees vary by geographic region outside the Americas.) Visit the Instructor Companion Site to request FlowLab to be installed in your department.
· "Fluids in the News"-A set of brief stories describing interesting, novel, and current applications of fluid mechanics is provided to generate interest in the topic.
· A brief "Chapter Summary and Study Guide" at the end of each chapter reinforce the key concepts students need to understand
